Hi All,

We have a dashboard created in SAP Design Studio 1.6 SP4 Patch 1 and have SAP BO Platform 4.2 SP3.

This dashboard is based on Universe (UNX) and data sources contains parameters (Created in UNX Data Foundation) for passing value and filtering data.

We did notices that if in Universe parameter is "Select_Month" in Design Studio script it will appear like


Any idea on what is meaning of prefix "ps" or "pm".

Another strange thing is in BO-Dev environment it prefix is "pm" but in BO-UAT and BO-PROD environment for few parameter it needs to be "ps". All BO environments are having same BO Platform, Design Studio version. But still the prefix are changing from environment to environment.

My guess:

p = parameter
s = single selection (operators like equal to or not equal to ; mono in @Prompt syntax)
m = multiple selection (operators like in or not in ; multi in @Prompt syntax)

Hi Arjit,

Thanks a lot.

Any idea on why this prefix may be changing from environment to environment?




Verify if the parameter definition in universe is same across environments.

You can also verify by running a report on top of the universe and check if the prompt accepts only single value or multiple values - this behavior should be same in all environments.
